Just got back from Hershey today where I saw signs of the future. It really doesn't look like anything will be affected other than the wet/dry slides. Canyon River Rapids doesn't look to be going anywhere. Unfortunately, I ddn't take my camera into the park, so my camera phone photos will have to suffice.
The Western Chute Out looks to be as doomed as ever, with the actual announcement sign ON the slide tower
Over in front of the Chute Out we find all sorts of markings. Expect the one game booth (milk can) to be removed as well
This group of plants is doomed too. But all in the name of Intamin multilooping hyper aquatrax goodness
Haha.. I like how they put the sign directly on the slides!!
Im still all about a hyper. I can completely agree that Hershey needs something that will make people look up and go "woah".. they definately don't need any more inversions! Except.. they have to be getting close to the world record for that too.
Wow, that perfect 10 and "diving score" theory makes sense. I have a feeling it'll be a dive machine, it's most likely to be a B&M because of the contract for 2 coasters, a dive machine can fit into a relatively small footprint compared to larger B&M coaster types too.
A US park other than Busch hasn't built one yet so I'm hoping this is what's happening.

I'm changing my original thoughts on the new ride. I don't belive the coaster will have the most inversions in the world either. This is why, when Hershey announced Storm Runner they mentioned about "a perfect ten".
HERSHEY, PA – The world’s first hydraulic launch coaster, featuring inversions, will race into HERSHEYPARK for the 2004 season, bringing the Park’s herd of roller coasters to a perfect ten
I think this rules out the most inversions because they are just building on the last coaster. Also the "H" in Hersheypark on the sign on the Western Chute Out looks like and arrow pointing down. I believe this is a hint at a B&M dive machine. Man I cannot wait for the announcement!
Can anyone post a picturre of the park map marking the area where the markers are? I've never been to the park and from the pictures I have no idea about how big this part is.
I think that with a better idea of the loaction of this coaster it's easier to guess.
